TRB Committee AR010 | Intercity Passenger Rail

The committee is concerned with research that will lead to better planning and implementation of intercity rail passenger systems, with particular emphasis on the full range of high-speed systems including new technology. This research will include demand analysis, financial considerations, economic impacts (including consideration of user and social benefits), and institutional arrangements including public-private partnerships. The research should also address impacts on other rail operations, coordination with other modes, rail-highway interfaces, corridor versus system concerns, technology assessment, environmental impacts, and implementation strategies.
